I am proud to call myself a Boltz Phoenix for over 15 years, and I love working with middle school students! I am originally from Overland Park, Kansas and received my bachelor's degree from the University of Kansas in English. My education career began in San Clemente, California where I taught English and Drama for three years. I received my teaching certifications through California Sate University, San Marcos. Once my family and I moved to beautiful Fort Collins, I continued my career teaching English, Drama, and Musical Theater at Boltz. Through those years, I found my passion for counseling students as well and received my master's degree in School Counseling and Psychotherapy through Adams Sate College. This is my fifth year as a school counselor at Boltz and service students with the last names M-Z. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, reading, skiing, being outdoors, and traveling. I feel blessed to be part of the Boltz family!
